Gluten free Easter biscuits with ground quinoa.

Hi everyone,

I decided to make myself some of these for Easter as I haven’t ventured into a supermarket so haven’t bought any hot cross buns this year.

I ground some quinoa into a coarse flour and used 75g with 140g plain gluten free flour 1 egg 110g of butter 110g mixed dried fruit with peel 1/2 tea spoon mixed slice and a little milk to make into a dough with flakes almonds for the topping. They were tray baked for around 25mins 160C until cooked through.

I often make biscuits with dried fruit and spices so I do like Easter biscuits.

Enjoy your Easter folks and as always keep safe. 🌈😊

Tomorrow evening at sundown is the last night/day. It's going better this year. Today, we will have leftover chopped liver with matzah and a few other items for lunch. :-)

You're welcome! They will definitely go well with a few meals that I have in mind coming up after Sunday. :-)

I thought there was too much blood in liver for it to be kosher?

Are they leavened?

It's Vegetarian. It's also cooked in a kosher store. :-)

Ah, thank you. I thought I was being thick; I'm not Jewish, but have been attempting to follow the Levitical laws.

Don't worry! If I don't know an answer to a question, then I'll let you know. :-)

Why do some people avoid all grains, leavened or not? Does self-raising flour count as leavening? Or other raising agents than yeast?

It's part of what happened in Egypt when Pharaoh wouldn't let the Jews leave. They didn't have time to let the bread bake so they took it on their backs and it turned into crackers that weren't leavened. They call it matzah. :-)

I know that bit, but not the implications to my questions, sorry.

The other thinking is, some people may be allergic to some of the grains/ingredients, but they never mention it in the story read each year for Passover. :-) They have gluten free matzah for those who don't eat gluten.

Right, but if I'm not gluten intolerant, sponge would still be off-limits because of its "puffed-upness"?

That's right-- unless the ingredients/bold type says 'kosher for Passover' on the label. :-)

No offence, but isn't there a possibility of exploitation here, rather than abiding by God's Law?

Not too sure about that. But, I know what you mean. :-)

Christians should also be aware of course; the bread that Jesus used at the last supper would have been unleavened, representing His sinless body, Jesus being the sacrificial lamb of the Passover.
